Net ’not ready’ for vital security update – BBC News

A plan to update the security around some of the net’s core address books has been delayed.Net administrative body Icann put its plans on hold after it emerged that some ISPs and large firms were not ready to make the change.It feared that tens of millions would lose net access if the change went ahead as planned on 11 October.Icann said it was working with ISPs to update software and ensure everyone is ready to switch next year.”It would be irresponsible to proceed with the roll [out] after we have identified these new issues that could adversely affect its success and could adversely affect the ability of a significant number of end users,” said Goran Marby, head of Icann.
